For this week’s Galaxy Note 2 GT-N7100 ROM of the Week, check out Phantom ROM.
Based on latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat firmware, Phantom ROM brings you some great Note 3 and Galaxy S5 features so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Phantom ROM, as its name implies, also comes with great performance and long battery life for those concerned for using it as daily driver. It comes with battery/performance tweaks, and memory/RAM tweaks that will help you get the most out of your Note 2.
As for features, you will find a slew of Note 3 features including Note 3 Air Command, Pen Window, Scrap Booker, Action Memo, Note 3 apps, and much more.
Phantom ROM also gives you the option to install additional S5/Note3 apps/features, which comes as a separate zip file. These include S5 Accuweather widget and Note2/Note 3 sounds. You will also get S5 apps for Calculator, Email, MMS, My Files, Video Player, Scrapbook, S Health, S Translator, keyboard, S5 wallpapers, and some more. There’s also 13 S5 launcher themes, which is a ton of great themes you can customize your TouchWiz launcher with. These are not installed by default when you install the zip file, you can install them one-by-one as you need. (See video above for instructions on this.)
Overall, Phantom ROM combines many of new Note 3/S5 features without causing a havoc on your app drawer with the user-selected approach for many of its features. Definitely check it out for this week’s ROM of the week and do let me know what you think!
